Have you ever set out on a road trip to a place you have been to before in the past and thought you knew how to get there?
You start driving and enjoying the scenery until suddenly you realize you must have made a wrong turn because nothing looks familiar anymore. Panic sets in. Your anxiety rises. Worried, turning your head from side to side frantically looking for a road sign, landmark, anything that looks familiar. You pull over, stop in your tracks, trying to decide what to do now. You find a map and retrace your steps until it becomes clear what went wrong. Now, knowing where you are, you make a U-turn, change course, and get back on track.
The sooner you make needed adjustments, get on the correct route, the quicker you will arrive where you want to go. This workbook is like that map.
Sometimes, we feel like we will never see the checkered flag because there’s too much of our “junk” on the track of life—things that we haven’t dealt with in healthy ways. That was the case for me, maybe it’s something you’re facing as well. If I didn’t deal with my junk, I wouldn't have been able to publish my first book and this companion workbook.
